Snake Blocks are a type of block that first debuts in Super Mario World. Snakes Blocks can also be called Caterpillars. They tend to appear in boss stages. Snakes Blocks get their name from the classic game Snake, where you control a serpentine arrangement of dots.

Snake Blocks are activated immediately if you stand on their upper side. There is no way to stop them until the snakes reach their destination.

In their debut appearance, Snakes Blocks are brown, like a used Block. More recent appearances have given them different colours. Super Mario Galaxy 2 shows them as purple. 2-D platformers show them as green.


New Super Mario Bros. Wii

An icy variant appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It behaves the same but is slippery, though a Penguin Suit can negate this penalty.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Additionally, in Super Mario Galaxy 2, Snakes appear in Bowser's Lava Lair and the Boo Moon Galaxy.

New Super Mario Bros. 2

In New Super Mario Bros. 2, Snakes Blocks appear to move on their own. Not only do we use them to cross gaps, but they also function as obstacles, their bodies getting in our way at times.

Super Mario Maker

They can be reproduced in Super Mario Maker by putting a long block row onto a track, though you still move on their upperside.

Super Mario Maker 2

They return proper in Super Mario Maker 2, where you can select the path they follow.

Mario Party 10

In Mario Party 10, they appear in the Minigame Snake Block Party.
